We stayed for 9 days in this motel during our golfing holiday (it is well located for golfing with numerous golf course quite near). The motel is old but with some improvements recently made, like a new roof, has succeeded to give an impression of being well maintained. Rooms are large and at least a couple of them as good...

I would advise staying away from this little motel from the 40's. Beds not too bad but almost no pillow. We could not close out the light from the window, had roaches hiding under everything and one wash cloth, two THIN towels & no bath mat. Returned second evening to find room not made up but extra wash cloth but... More

All positive reviews about this place are fake. In reality this is a completely unsafe and horrible place. The previous reviewer was absolutely honest "This place is in a very creepy part of Lake Worth". The only truth from the positive reviews is that the room size is ok. The rest is unacceptable: the smell in the room (Tabaco and... More

I posted a very positive review of this hotel after staying there in 2011. I was visiting the WPB area again in July 2013, so re-booked without a moment's hesitation. BIG mistake, In the not-quite 2 years since my last visit, the hotel has deteriorated terribly--I suspect due to the fact that Mike (the owner) has decided to keep his... More

I chose this motel because of the positive reviews I read on TripAdvisor. What a disappointment. Unfortunately, I had prepaid or I would have cancelled the reservation and moved on. The room was clean but very dated. The pool uninviting. Gates locked at night left me feeling unsafe. Other patrons seemed like residents of the place rather than vacationers. Felt... More

Lovely Persian restaurant with delicious and cheap food. The food is simply great- during our 4 night stay, we ate there 5 times. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Security keeps a careful eye on the property at night in this quiet neighborhood. I recommend this motel highly and will stay there again.

Finishing my breakfast after another stay at the New Sun Gate. I stay here on South Florida scuba diving trips. It's a great value with large, comfortable, and clean rooms. The owner and staff are always very nice and pleasant to deal with.

Visiting family in the area I have not seen in years, this was an affordable Palm Beach motel. Only stayed one night but found my room clean enough, and king bed more than comfortable in a spacious room. The motel is dated - 5 different type/ages of tile in the room, older inexpensive furniture, over grown landscaping, worn kitchen-vanity area.... More
